Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie Ingredients

We love this rhubarb and strawberry pie because it doesn't call for a ton of hard-to-find ingredients. Here's what you'll need to add to your grocery list: 

Sugar 
You'll need a cup of white sugar for the filling and two tablespoons to sprinkle on top of the pie right before baking. 

Flour
All-purpose flour will combine with the juices from the rhubarb and strawberries to create a thick filling.   

Rhubarb
Thoroughly clean your rhubarb stalks, then slice them into ¼-inch pieces. 

Strawberries 
Hull and quarter about two pints of strawberries. In a pinch, frozen berries will work — but fresh is best for this recipe. 

Pie Crust
Use a store-bought double pie crust or try our top-rated Butter Flaky Crust

Butter
Adding a little bit of fat to the filling will keep the juices from bubbling over. 

Egg Yolk
Brush the finished pie crust with an egg yolk to add color and shine.

You'll find the full, step-by-step recipe below — but here's what you can expect when you make this perfect rhubarb and strawberry pie: 

Make the Filling

Mix the flour and sugar in a large bowl. Add the rhubarb and strawberries, then toss until the fruit is fully coated. Let the mixture stand for about half an hour. 

Fill the Pie

Pour the filling into a pie crust, dot with butter, and add the top layer. Crimp edges with wet fingers to seal. Brush the top layer with the egg yolk and cut small holes to allow the steam to escape. 

Bake the Pie

Bake the pie in a preheated oven until the filling is bubbly and the crust is golden brown. Let the pie cool on a wire rack before cutting and serving. 

How to Store Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie

Cover the leftover rhubarb and strawberry pie tightly with foil and store at room temperature for up to two days. Store it in the fridge, tightly covered with foil, for up to five days. 

Can You Freeze Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie? 

Yes, you can freeze strawberry-rhubarb pie cooked or uncooked. 

To freeze uncooked strawberry-rhubarb pie: Assemble the strawberry-rhubarb pie in a foil pan and follow the recipe until the last step, but don't bake it. Wrap the pie tightly in foil and place it in a large zip-top freezer bag (if you don't have a large enough bag, just wrap it in another layer of foil). Freeze for up to two months and bake according to the recipe, adding a few extra minutes of bake time to account for the frozen temperature. 

To freeze cooked strawberry-rhubarb pie: Bake the pie in a foil pan, then allow it to come to room temperature. Wrap the pie tightly in foil and place it in a large zip-top freezer bag. Freeze for up to two months. Thaw in the fridge overnight.

Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

"This is the best strawberry-rhubarb pie recipe," according to one Allrecipes community member. "I [found] it two years ago and I make a few pies from local rhubarb and strawberry when they are in season. I recommend putting a cookie sheet under the pie because it sometimes bubbles over."

"Made this exactly as stated," says AMMB. "Absolutely delicious and it was loved by all! Perfect combination of tartness and sweetness."

"Superb recipe," raves Sarah Snow. "I used organic cane sugar instead of white sugar. This recipe was almost as good as the pie my great-grandmother used to make when I was a child."
